Why is Heathrow allegedly under more of a terrorist threat than usual, according to the media spin and hype ?
How are 3 or 4 year old photographs of Heathrow and/or unnamed underpasses in London allegedly found on a computer (or was it on CDROM or floppy disk) in the possession of Mohammed Naeem Noor Khan the alleged Al Quaeda "computer communications expert" actually a threat ? Or were these actually on Ahmad Khalfan Ghailani's computer, the other recent suspect arrested in Pakistan ?
If Khan was such an "expert" charged with sending encrypted emails of handwritten notes smuggled from Osama bin Laden etc. on through the Al Quaeda network, then how come any unencrypted photos were found on his computer ?
Perhaps these photos were not considered to be sufficiently important to bother to encrypt them.
Perhaps, like many terrorists before him, a whole list of possible names and targets were discovered, none of which were in the current plans, but were either rejected targets or disinformation designed to spread panic and to waste security resources in protecting them, thereby removing those resources from the real targets.
If Mohammed Naeem Noor Khan is supposed to have "visited the UK" at least 6 times, then when was the most recent visit ?
Why are these old photos more of a threat than the live broadcast tv cameras of the news organisations who are currently camped out at Heathrow which are broadcasting current , up to date details of the airport all over the world ?
Since when is a mere photograph equivalent to an actual terror threat ?
Where is the evidence of access to or attempts to procure firearms, explosives, missiles, toxins etc. which would point to an actual threat ?
Unless these alleged photos are of sensitive restricted areas, which require employee airside security access, then the UK Government should publish them to allay the media speculation about a current ongoing terror plot.
There even seems to be some doubt as to whether or not the Pakistani authorities have actually bothered to pass on these alleged photos to the UK authorities.
Perhaps the "unamed sources in Pakistan" are actually sympathetic to Al Quaeda, because their leaks about what is supposedly on the computers of Khan and Ghailani have been very successful in getting the media and electioneering politicians to strir up panic and terror over Heathrow, and the financial districts of New York, New Jersey Washington and London.
